Juggling Roles

I was a bit late in going to the office today because the helper asked me if I could give my daughter a quick bath before I leave for work. She told me that Zoe has been vomiting without reason for the past days and that she may have gotten my pregnancy bug (that is, she's experiencing the morning sickness instead of me). By giving her a bath, that pregnancy bug might disappear. Although I thought that this is mere superstition, I gladly complied because I realized that even before I take in my role as a career woman, I have to stay loyal and true first to my original role as wife and mother.

Anybody who says that it's easy to juggle the many roles that a modern woman has must belong to another century. With women given more opportunities in the workplace in the past years, whether due to acquired skills, competency or high educational attainment, their time is more and more divided into compartments. But this does not mean that the more important roles of being a wife and a mother disappear when she goes to the office. She continues to be so. In fact, her competence in the workplace should also be in the same level as her competence in her roles at home. There is no excuse for a successful woman to be a lousy mother or wife. She has to maintain that high level of service, skill and love in everything she does.

What are the things a woman can do to manage her roles well? First, she can employ the help of effective tools such as planners, telecommunication gadgets like the cellular phone or something more sophisticated such as an IT computer tool or something. Just as marketing professionals make use of various software such as the Data Scraping Software to drive profits into the company, a woman must be wise in using tools that could make her life much easier. Even keeping a small notebook in her bag can make a huge difference if she can maximize its use in doing her day-to-day jobs. All she has to have is constant order in her thoughts and in material things. All the rest is up to her, the love that she has and grace from God.

Happy Women's Month!

Summer is a time for...

Sunny shades...

and pigtails! :-)

Don't you wish you were a little girl too? :-P

Payday Loan

A Payday Loan is a possible solution for those who are caught in-between paydays and need to pay for some unexpected expense.

It is a fact that life now is not easy. It's hard to be bumping into some kind of financial squeeze especially if your salary is just enough to pay for your family's basic needs. That is why I always recommend getting a payday loan facility to friends and colleagues who do not have existing savings and unfortunately get into a surprise expense. These surprises can come in various forms: family members getting sick, a broken car, an unplanned trip that one has to make, etc. etc. A payday loan can really be your answer for the rough times ahead.

Revisiting Tapa King

I had a p.m. activity after work last Wednesday and my husband drove all the way to Makati from QC to pick me up. Since it was already late, we decided to eat dinner first before heading home. We decided to go to Dela Rosa Parking lot where there is a haven of restaurants - Teriyaki Boy, Pancake House, Sugarhouse, Kenny Rogers, and much more. But what caught our attention (and our tummies) is the inviting smell from the Tapa King resto.

We haven't had Tapa King in months you see and it was great to be there again.

Of course, we both ordered their yummy Tapsilog...

We also found out that they have some Lenten offerings especially good on Fridays when we abstain from meat.

Picture of the happy couple -- (oh my - is that my nose growing bigger?!!)

Love it!

On A Sunday Afternoon...

It was a hellish work week for me and I mean super hellish!!

Anyway, I'm so glad that after all the tiring days at work, I have them to come home to. We bonded last Sunday, just the three of us and it was HEAVEN. :-)

Can You Read My Mind?

On the way to the supermarket coming from the office, I asked my hubby if we can eat dinner first before doing the grocery. Here's how our conversation went:

Me: Let's eat first. Can you read my mind as to where I want to eat?

Him: Ikaw naman, do you really want me guess that you want to eat at A Venetto? (smiles)

Me: Hahaha! Sakto! Ang galing mo talaga!

So we head to Pizzeria a Venetto right after parking.

While waiting for the food, we entertained ourselves by guessing who these guys are in the mural.

Now for the order of the day:

Seafood Pesto Pie (small)...

and Classic Carbonara...

The servings were big that we were so full. The food we took home was actually still enough to be my lunch-baon the next day.

On a side note, I just love that they have parmesan cheese and pepper flakes on hand all the time...

...and I just love having dinner out with the one I love (naks!)...

Thanks Huny for being my Superman. :-) (wink)

Have You Been There?

...to the "new" Eastwood Mall, I mean?

My hubby and I took a quick peak of this new mall and was wow-ed by the relaxing atmosphere that this new place has. It has the nicest stores and less people (just what we need!). And I just love that it's only 15 minutes away from our house (we can actually speed right over there for a quick merienda on weekends!).

There are still some more stores left to be opened and I'm so looking forward to doing my next shopping right there. :-) Love it!

Pls. give me a minute

...to breathe.

I'm having a very stressful morning and I can just cry at this very moment. I don't know if it's just my preggy hormones or it's everything else in the world.

So please give a minute to breathe -- to pause, to pray and to see that there are so many other things in this life that's good.





Thanks! That's so much better.

It's Been Quite Awhile...

...sorry for sounding like a song.

So sorry too for the lack of posts in this blog. March has always been a super hectic time for me at work. I really am hoping I'll be done with my project at work soon so I can start blogging freely again, hahaha. I'm telling you, all the hard work sometimes do not really mean it's worth it. There's too much pressure on me right now (oh...I don't want to dwell on that now and mortify all of you).

Meantime, please bear with my intermittent posts here. Just please try to visit my other more active blog - House Everything for house tips and other updates.

Till next time. Thanks much for dropping by!
